I also agree that GW was one of the better gundam series, personally I never read the manga but it would be interesting if the missing parts were animated as a special,OVA or whatever

I think it would be great if Gundam Wing was re-aired on TV. Even though the series is nearly 12 years old, sometimes series can be re-aired after many years. The only problem is that even though, there are still many GW fans, I don't really know if there are enough fans who are still interested in watching GW for the series to bring in a lot of raitings. (Also, as Gundam Wing was the only Gundam series released in the UK, I don't really know how much more or less popular it was compared to other Gundm series released in the US). Maybe if the manga sidestories were animated, the series may become popular again.

Episode Zero is one manga that I definately should have been animated. Originally, the stories of the characters' were meant to be shown after episode 27 (The Locus Point of Victory and Defeat), but due to problems with schedueling, it was never fit into the series, and the manga Episode Zero was written instead. I wish it had been in the series (it would have been interesting to see animated versions of Middie Une and Meiran Chang).

I'd also love to see the animated version of Blind Target, my favourite GW manga so far (although I still haven't read Battlefield for Pacifists or the manga version of Endless Waltz). I found that it kept close to the style of the series (even though it was set in "peacetime") and explained what happened during the time period after the series and before Endless Waltz. Even if Blind Target is never animated (which is likely), it would be nice to have a translated verstion of the Blind Target radio drama (or even just an english transcript).

I don't feel that the manga Ground Zero should be animated though. Although I personally loved it and though of it a sweet, lighter story that broke away from the more serious nature of the series, some fans maybe dissapointed by its different style and the fact that some of the pilots were a bit OOC at times (Trowa's laughing fit didn't really seem right, although it was quite funny). Also Ground Zero was written in more of a shoujo style, so it doesn't quite fit with the series.

I also wish that they would release the Operation Meteor I & II OVAs with English Subs. *For anyone who doesn't already know Operation Meteor I & II were 2 OVAs
released in 1996, featuring clips from the series in the point of view of each pilot. It consists of 4 episodes with 7 new scenes as well as the clips* I haven't been able to find the full episodes anywhere and although I downloaded the 7 scenes,the subs were in Chinese. I couldn't even find any English fansubs. It's really annoying that Bandai didn't release an English version (subbed or dubbed) of Odds and Evens, beacause English speaking GW fans are missing out on 4 full episodes!!! As GW was so popular when it aired I don't see why they didn't release the OVAs. It could even have helped make the series more popular.

I think that the Gundam Wing novels and the sidestories "Tiel's Impulse" and "A Scythe in My Left Hand and You in my Right", should have been published in English. It could have only increased the popularity of the series as it would mean that there is more GW merchandise available.

-Erm sorry if I got a bit carried away.


I really need to catch up with the GW manga....I remember doing a scenario for the G-Unit and Blind Target mangas in a SD Gundam game.

Oh, and G-Unit is a side-story in the GW universe....If I remember correctly, it was before White Fang appeared.

I loved the GW Mobile Suits when I was younger but, after watching many other Gundam shows....I realized that every GW Mobile Suit had major flaws.(If you ever played a SRW game with GW in it you'll know what I'm talking about.), I mean the designs are cool but, still flawed....Wing Zero's Twin Buster Rifle only has 3 shots at a time, Heavy Arms is almost completely useless at close range, Death Scythe is useless at long range, Sandrock is good at close and mid-range but, at long range it's at a disadvantage...I like more realistic Mobile Suits like, the Zeta Gundam...It doesn't really need fancy weapons to fight it's completely balanced in firepower and close-combat...The only thing it has special really is it's Bio-Sensor....Which can harnesses a Newtype pilot's power to increase effectiveness in combat.

well, it's unfortunate but i have to say gundam wing might not bring in the ratings as much as it did.. anime fans nowadays like the CGs of gundam seed and the like... they do not know the roots and beauty of the original gundams and do not have the capacity to appreciate it anymore..

Gundam Wing, or at least its story was indeed better than SEED, I've never read the Wing manga so I wouldn't know how good it is, and honestly it'd be cool if they could remaster the series in high definition, while maybe adding in a few scenes here or there. By the way, on a side note to someone who spoke earlier in this thread, G Gundam was the first alternate universe gundam show, then wing, gundam x, and on.

hmm... i never was into Gundam WING. In my opinion Gundam WING has the 2nd worse storyplot next to GundamSeedDESTINY. the ONLY THINGs i'm really into about it were: the beautiful Gundam design they had in GundamWING and the old-school flashy fighting style that they also had!

if they sumhow improved the plot, then i personally wouldnt mind GundamWING to be re-aired again.
